Scott Kazmir can be excused for not recalling any details about his last major league victory.
‘‘I can’t remember that long ago,’’ he said.
Kazmir earned his first win in three seasons Saturday as the Indians defeated the Minnesota Twins, 7-3, in Cleveland for their sixth straight victory.
A two-time AL All-Star who pitched in an independent league last season, Kazmir (1-1) allowed two runs in six innings. It was his first win since beating Tampa Bay on Sept. 19, 2010, while with the Angels.
The 29-year-old Kazmir overcame a series of arm injuries and a stint with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League in 2012. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
